10:01pm
you can't stay at a trump property. you can't stay at sheldon adelson hotel. you can't stay at steve wynn's hotel either. >> cenk: i love this one. the ridiculous efforts to get black voters. >> it's a big lie that democrats are for black americans and republicans are against black americans. abraham who freed the slaves was a republican. >> cenk: and so was alexander the great if we're going back to history--awesome. and the elbow of the day who's head is it going to land on? you'll love it. it's go time. [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> obama: it's good to be back. >> romney: if the president is re-elected he still will be
10:02pm
unable to work with the people in progress. >> our top priority is defeat president obama the second time. >> i can't thank president obama enough for his personal concern and passion. >> people are dumpster diving, and what they're going after here is the food. >> this is america folks. it is not supposed to be this way. >> job reports appear relatively good news. >> i think it would be helpful to have a president who actually understand job creation. >> ohio, i'm not ready to give up to make sure that the middle class is growing. >> you vote or you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry. i'm told that's not accurate. >> i'm tired of bronco bamma and mitt romney. >> it will be over soon abby.
10:03pm
>> cenk: this is fun. presidentpresident obama is in ohio. he has a couple of elbows of his own. >> you have folks at the jeep plant who is have been calling their employers worried, is it true are our jobs being shipped to china? and the reason why they're making these calls is because governor romney has been running an ad that says so. except it's not true. everybody knows it's not true. the car companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. >> cenk: all right, that's pretty good. you know when he gets excited his voice goes up a little--not true. but it isn't true. both candidates have been crisscrossing the country especially president obama. i get the sense that he might go to ohio a couple of times. tell me about it. >> but a look at the rest of his campaign schedule makes the buckeye state look like an
10:04pm
airline hub for air force hub through election day. for his part mitt romney is not only focusing on ohio but also hoping to win over wisconsin. he's looking to broaden the battleground map campaigning sunday and visiting new hampshire twice, the smallest swing state that may be edging in mr. romney's direction. >> cenk: all right, now where is it edging? lucky for you we have the numbers. latest polls 50%-47% in favor of president obama in ohio! now what did i tell you was key to the election night? you're going to look out for owin. that's "o" as in ohio "w" which is, "i," in "with a and nevada. they are there with the two two first baptist church to
10:05pm
four-point--there with two two- two- to four-point lead. mark hamil, ana kasparian michael shure, jayar jackson get going. >> when i get rattled with these polls, and andreas must i think they skew the national polls. >> cenk: they're mad at nate silver for doing math. oh i can't believe he contemplated the polls. >> it's reassuring to me. attacking his sexuality calling him gay. where did that come from? what does that have to do with it.
10:06pm
>> cenk: anybody who does math is obviously gay. didn't you miss that memo? >> i think mark passed his 10 minutes. is he banned. >> cenk: let's go to a-21, early voting is critical in ohio. there we have fascinating numbers. one in four people already voted in ohio, which is important. and president obama seems to have a gigantic lead, 60-34 obviously it's not the end all be all. but the ground game for president obama might be a little bit better. how much of a difference do you think that might make. >> you see why republican governorrers have beengovernors have been fighting. if you question the motives of the people, it's laid there in the early voting. it will have an impact, this early voting, especially in florida. i don't know in ohio. this is still a new thing.
10:07pm
the testing and polling on this is hard to tell. you only know by what party people have voted. going back to owin really quickly, and i'll hit the clock on it here. if romney doesn't win ohio, it's a disaster for him. we have to reiterate that. this is not just president obama's only way to win re-election. nor is it one--it's one of many ways for him. for mitt romney, he has got to win that state. >> cenk: that leads me to something really interesting. karl rove and a lot of republicans out there are predicting that romney is going to win. when you look at the electoral map it doesn't seem like that's anywhere near true. let me read you some quotes. my predictions sometime after the cock crows on the morning of november 7th, that's really uncomfortable, mitt romney will be declared america's 45th president. this is what i don't want to hear, karl rove talking about that. hehe continues this is funny.
10:08pm
in addition to the data, the anecdote tall and intangible evidence from crowd sizes to each side's closing arguments give the sense that the odds favor mr. romney. they do, they really do. >> by the way he thought bush would beat gore. >> cenk: that seems to me that it's a bizarre thing to do. karl rove is not stupid. he knows that romney is not winning. >> nobody knows will remember that karl rove said this. we will. he doesn't want anybody to lose heart. that they're going to win. what republicans don't want to say now is where the money is going, where they're giving money to house and senate candidates, not to romney. okay, this is over, and he's not part of that message. >> cenk: let me throw out a theory. i think they're doing an preemptive strike in case it's a
10:09pm
very close race. romney was going to win. we told you he was going to win. romney won romney won. almost exactly what they did in in 2000 with george w. bush. >> that's what it seems like. they're setting the stage. they're trying to change the public perception so they think of course, romney has it in the bag. as soon as it's a close race they can ask for a recount and then we see the same situation that we saw with bush and gore. >> cenk: they're trying to say if it's a tie which seems so implausible, except it happened in 2000, then justice is on romney's side because romney was supposed to win. >> he's just doing his job. no one will have egg on their face when their candidate loses because they're supposed to think that their candidate is going to win. >> cenk: of course fox news did it, and then newt gringrich, of course famous predictor saying romney is going to get 300
10:10pm
electoral votes. >> what is this based on? is it based on gut instinct. >> did you see what dick morris said today. he said, me meh maybe not. he was predicting a landslide for romney two days ago and now a caution comes from the latest harassrassmeson poll be. >> you know how i feel about polls. they are ridiculous. >> cenk: i'll tell i couldn't i resent that. >> it reinforces my feelings. i feel that's what karl rove is going for. he's hoping that enough people will say oh, it's over. not show up because hearing such
10:11pm
terrible news. or they're trying to help bring in the winner. >> it's part of rove's theory where you have these undecided where they jump on the bandwagon and vote for the winner. oh we've got momentum. remember two weeks ago when they were pushing that. >> cenk: yes, i got--i want to do one clip. a-20. the reason why i want to do this is it's fascinating. they've got a woman voter who is going to vote for romney. let's watch what she tells "the new york times." >> even talking about those type of women's issues are scare tactics. those are such old subjects. did i really think that we're going to go back to the point where women will not be able to have abortion, birth control it's going to be rationed? that's silly to think of. >> cenk: isn't that amazing that
10:12pm
their position is so wrong and of course, don't even believe it. that possibly can't be the case. >> why the people should make a bigger issue of the supreme court in elections. the people who can roll that back are the nine men and women of the supreme court. the type of people that mitt romney will put on that court if he's president is the type of people that this woman is not yet afraid of. >> i think it's confusing for a lot of romney constituents because for so long he supported upholding roe v. wade. and he has come against it and in cryptic language. a lot of people may not have been reached to know that his position has flip flopped. >> cenk: that's what they want, they want people to read into it what they want to read into it. we'll take a break and when we come back we'll talk about hurricane sandy. and of course fox news is trying to blame president obama. >> this is going badly for obama
10:13pm
because at a certain point we're all in this together, let's do this, then people get their patience and their emotion run very thin. >> something has to be done immediately. >> cenk: and you will love our elbow of the day at the end of the show. who it falls on, why it falls on them. and it (vo) brought to you by mucinex fast max. use as directed.
10:14pm
10:15pm
>> cenk: now we have serious fallout from super storm sandy. a lot of people have not gotten their power back and there is perilous situations in different areas. >> look how desperate it has got in this neighborhood. we're outside of the key foods
10:16pm
avenue a and east fourth street, and people are dumpster diving. what they're going after is the food that was inside these key foods. we presume it was spoiled and dumped out here for garbage. but instead those here are so hungry they literally pried open this dumpster. you see it open right now and they're literally picking through for whatever they can take home with themselves. >> cenk: now, that is not a good site. a lot of people are angry they didn't get their power back for a while. they were considering doing the marathon in new york, now it's been canceled. and now the report with how it's going in the rockways 12,347 there is a feeling of being stuck, anger and feeling of abandonment is mounting. >> we're not sitting around singing kumbaya this is a
10:17pm
really dangerous situation. >> many say they have never felt more in the shadows of manhattan until now. feelings that only intensify at night. >> cenk: i did love that guy's new york accent. we're not singing kumbaya. of course fox news cannot wait to bash the president on this. >> jimmy carter had gas lines miles long. that's if you could find a station with power and gas. this is america. this is not supposing to this way. >> this is going badly for obama. at first we're all in this together, let's do this, and then people start to get their patience and emotion run very thin. >> we gave the administration 1 trillion-dollar to beef up the infrastructure. if they spent 1 trillion-dollar burying the grid underground so every time there is a 50 mph wind we don't have half the countries losing power. that would have been good use.
10:18pm
>> cenk: by the way there was $150 billion for infrastructure in the stimulus bill which the republicans and fox news vehemently objected to. when it's convenient they turn around and say i wish we had a stimulus for infrastructure. our crews are back, mark, ana jayar, right? so does fox have any point here? is there something here, political ramifications. >> it's shameful what they're doing politicsize a disaster like this. yes, maybe there should have been better infrastructure, maybe we should have been more prepared, but it's not resting solely on the president's shoulders. it's kicking people while they're down. >> and to call up jimmy carter. he was president during an energy crisis that affected the
10:19pm
entire nation. this is a reaction to a storm where yes the reasons why we can't get to the gas because there is not the electricity to make the pumps work. this is not carterresque. the way fox makes that work, carterresque, it has nothing to do with it. >> it compares romney with reagan. he's got the look, the hair, the handsomeness. if they're successful making obama a jimmy carter figure, they're not giving up, but i don't think it's working. >> let's look at romney. in the past he said he would cut funding for fema. how is that going to help a situation like this where we do need a government agency to come to the rescue when we have a natural disaster like this. of course he has changed his tune a little bit. >> cenk: i have that for you ana. let's watch during the primary debates when he was radical romney. he was totally against fema. let's watch that clip right now. >> fema is about to run out of money. some people say do it on a case
10:20pm
by case basis. some say maybe we're learning a lesson that the state should take on more of this role. >> romney: absolutely. any time you have an occasion that takes something from the federal government and sends it back to the states, that's the right direction. and go further and send it to the private sector, that's even better. >> cenk: so very clear. no fema. this week, as president i will assure fema has the funding it needs to fulfill it's mission. while director max resources to the first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need because states and localities are in the best position to give aid from natural disaster. same thing. what position do you need me to have? >> multiple-choice mitt. >> this brings up this question. say there was president romney at this point, and in the past he always said these things. i mean from '08 to '20. and then the storm hits the east
10:21pm
coast. is he going to send fema out? this is where people have comfort in his flip flopping, in the right situation he says the right thing. >> will fema be there to be sent out. that's the danger. if you leave this up to the state, and the state is underwater, who is going to help them. in california here we deal with earthquakes. where i'm front in texas we dealt with tornadoes. people in florida deal with hurricanes. new york does not. to get federal help from experts who know how to deal with this issue instead of within the state who may not understand what they need to do. that's important. that's why we work together. >> we have a clip from the five. there has never been a point that well-made. >> look, when push comes to shove, to answer the question in what rome would do, romney would do,
10:22pm
chris christie, i don't want federal money. i would punch them in the money before i take federal money. now after the storm, federal money, i'm begging you we need the federal money. >> if you go in surgery you get your toe chopped off and then you're somebody who hates malpractice lawyers. but what happens the doctor chops your toe off oh, i malpractice. when you need the federal government, it's there. >> i like cenk's chris christie choicevoice for the guy who gets his toe chopped off. >> it's like a self self-fulfilling prophecy. they have got to make it look bad. >> the thing about chris christie that i have to sayhat ibb appreciate e e'e'bbraraatist. t you can't be pragmatic in
10:23pm
the moment. you have to plan for the future. you have to plan for catastrophic events that occur in the future. in the moment he said we can work together. but as soon as sandy is not resting on his shoulders he won't worry about the next thing. he'll talk about being insulateed and talking about how the government is taking control. >> cenk: when you look at how the president handled two big storms whether it's sandy or katrina, do you believe in government or do you not believe in government. it can effect policies. you can have disastrous vault as aresultsor good results. >> it's so much fake rhetoric that they say. they say we don't need the federal government. but they don't have the money. if it's not there how does your beloved private sector have the
10:24pm
money? >> what fox wants is the idea that we're going to see moments in sandy with white people that are reminiscent of katrina with black people. again, the subtle inference when white people needed help, he showed no interest. >> cenk: here's the difference. there's no difference. to reach out and hit them across the face in several bill o'reilly clips. >> blacks can gain success and prosperity by voting out obama and the democrats and voting in the republican. >> cenk: i just don't think that's going to work. then later should we start thinking about floodgates? is climate change so serious we should design around it.
10:25pm
>> a harbor pivoting up when needed to block the one time it's okay for you to miss my show is if that's the only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart.
10:26pm
10:27pm
osaka,{^l"^^}-for-tore. >> cenk: a new super pac has convinced that they have a new way to get african-americans to vote for republicans. >> i have a major revelation for black americans. it is a big lie that democrats are for black americans and republicans are against black
10:28pm
americans. abraham lincoln who freed the slaves was a republican. republicans founded the naacp. republicans passed the civil rights act while democrats opposeed it. blacks can gain success and prosperity by voting out the democrats and voting in the republicans. >> cenk: all right let's see if it worked. we have our panel here. i'll just pick someone as random. jayar. are you convinced? are you now republican after watching that ad. >> i was on the edge. they were trying to say all the right things. slavery. oh, my god. >> you're against slavery. from the very beginning the first thing coming out of the advocate's mouth, i have an announcement for you idiot black people, you dumb asss. the first thing that comes out are going straight to the emotional things.
10:29pm
the naacp that you all loved. i heard you don't like it when we have separate fountains and we couldn't go to the same school, we did that, too. do you like that? it doesn't even begin to work. >> it's so insulting because it makes the assumption that black people don't know the difference between the republican party from 1865 to today. the republican party is so different. when you look at racial institutions in the country and the republican party is really looking out for you? i don't think anybody is buying that. >> strong sermon. become a republican because the democrats from supporting civil rights. that's the end of the conversation. >> cenk: the conversation was that they had to go back to the 1860s who liked blacks. >> and in case they didn't know it, a lot of black people in america, go, well, i think--well we know abraham lincoln was
10:30pm
forced into the direction of saving the whole country in freeing the slaves. he didn't wake up thinking, i feel for these guys. i'm going to change this whole place. he did it for ways that helped himself. look how we praise him to this day. >> it ended up really not helping him. it took an ugly turn for him. >> cenk: but it did help the country. if all this was settled fox news will make sure that you get the message. bill reilly will be talking about black which he's a huge expert in. >> using affirmative action to succeed, and barack obama did use affirmative action to be educated. do you think there is any racial business here. i'm not saying anything in in the at the othertive. did the presidents come up the
10:31pm
same way. >> no if mike huckabee supports you is there racism. >> i didn't say racism. i said racial connection. >> i know what you're trying to say but its disrespectful. it's disrespectful to journal powell and to the president. you cannot take such a pedigree and dilute it to pigmentation. >> you don't think shared experience enters into-- >> you're telling me that if president obama had not done a good job that colin powell, general powell would have supported president obama regardless absolutely not. >> i'm saying he might be cutting him a little more slack. >> you can paint it how you want to but i don't agree with you. >> i ask a provocative question, which is what i do here. >> cenk: just ask an asinine question. >> i love his euphemism there a
10:32pm
shared experience. >> cenk: there is truth to some degree. not in what colin powell has done, but how bill o'reilly is projecting. i vote on race so i assume colin powell is going to vote on race. >> i think the notion, and god bless arthel neville nope, nope, nope. >> she got that job because she was black. >> the chairman of the joints chief of staff, a four-star general, who has sent men to die for the country is going to be, like oh, i don't care. he could be doing a bad job but i'm going to support him. i'm going to put more americans in harm's way because we're the same race? >> cenk: why didn't he support jesse jackson all those years. >> or herman cain. and colin powell who did all those things is supporting the other guy, what are we doing wrong that we're losing people
10:33pm
like colin powell? they're terrible in introspection, but the party won't change until one or two of them or five of them, or here on the seven we helped them along. >> i think they're starting to see that to some extent. we're starting to see a riff in the republican party. even michael steele who is distancing himself from the kind of tea party core that you see in the republican party. that's a question that i wanted to ask you ana you brought up the point when we saw that first ad. it's insulting that they would think that the black constituent constituency wouldn't know the difference between the republican party now and then. are we even talking about the republican party any more? >> i think we are. >> is there a republican party any more? this is what i want to know. >> i think the republican party you talk about distancing themselves, i think they're trying to distance themselves from the tea partyers. >> but that becomes the core
10:34pm
base. >> i think they're moving away from that. i don't think it's the core base any more. they're realizing that it's hurting them in congressional races, and they don't want any part of that. >> maybe it's a general election and we see more moderate opinions out there in the general election. >> i. >> cenk: i want to give you one more clip because i love this. bill o'reilly figured it out after the american grievances. let him educate us. >> do you think it has anything to do with grievance because in some african-american communities there is a grievance against whites who are not sympathetic to their cause. and that may be driving a little bit of it. so there are some african-americans who believe that the reason they're not prospering as a community, all right, is because society has not done enough. the reason why society has not done enough because of rich white guys. >> cenk: mark, last word. does it seem like he's saying, here they go again. they want more and more. that's why they want obama to win, so they can take more.
10:35pm
all their grievances. >> i find everything that comes out of his mouth coded for a pre-determined response, to empower people to feel okay with feeling that way. i don't know who he was talking to. >> dennis miller. >> i didn't know he was black. >> cenk: all right, we have to leave it right there. when we come back we'll talk about climate change, and there is a devastating ad against mitt romney on that as well. >> president obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans. my promise is to help you and your family.

[ cheering ] >> cenk: that's a pretty devastating ad. now north carolina city after suffering through sandy is thinking, well this thing is so real we've got to start taking precautions to which i say of course! >> experts now wonder if the massive storm surge that flood lower manhattan and washed away parts of the jersey shore could have been solved by sea
10:40pm
barriers. now two engineering firms are preparing massive shields like these near the harbor. a wall i lie lies flat in the harbor and then comes up to protect the storm surge. they have them in london and the netherlands operating 4 24 hours a day. >> we have the whole man here, you're the senior science journalist for the "huffington post." okay, we we could put walls up, but shouldn't we go to the source of the problem fossil fuels. >> you have to mitigate the effects because in some respects it is a little too late to reverse this problem. but you also want to work as hard as you can to stop it from getting any worse. we can talk about this kind of
10:41pm
two degree celsius problem, and we can get to the technical stuff. but the truth is it's already gotten so bad and even if we stopped putting emissions in the atmosphere it will still get worse for many, many years. >> cenk: let's talk about that for a minute. we have thisthere is magical reverse when we need it. it seems that that would be the time. >> they're saying, the scientists will do all that. >> cenk: seriously is there a way to reverse it. >> to reverse climate change? >> cenk: it just times. >> it a function of making sure it doesn't get worse. we are we at that level. >> cenk: that was a hard-hitting ad against mitt romney against climate change. should democrats--that was an outside group. should democrats run more ads that way or is the problem also
10:42pm
captured by the puzzle. >> it's just tragic that they have managed to make science into a political issue. it seemed to be the greatest thing to bring us together in a nonpartisan way if not to cope with, cure the problem. that's why it's so hard to see the republicans laugh at his "humor" when there should be sincere efforts. to answer your question, absolutely. i think we should grab that mantle, and we're on the right side of history. >> cenk: anybody believe this is the moment where it hit the new yorkers and dc, that maybe there is a chance that it will break through, oh wow this is really serious. >> the hope is that this breaks through to obama. this is where true patriots are going to question their own advocate. obama has been have had very kateing for drill baby drill and "clean coal," and these
10:43pm
things are not going to save you see from ourselves. >> by the way look at the package we just showed. it was media talking about how could this possibly be linked to climate change? at this point i feel like its obama's obligation and responsibility to make this part of the discussion. but the politicians are afraid to do it because it has become political. at the same time things continue to get worse. we keep seeing extreme weather more and more of these hurricanes, and nothing has been done about it because everybody it is too afraid to talk about it. >> cenk: this is nasa keeping track of the temperatures since 1880ss going back and tracking it. gee, i wonder if the temperatures are increasing? i can't quite tell. as you look at something like that you have to deny absolute reality to say no, i don't see it. >> just turn the graphic upside down. >> the 1880s that's when they
10:44pm
had good republicans. >> cenk: one last thing before we leave. mark hamil. "star wars" 7. are you in it? >> i would love to make a big announcement. but i don't know enough. >> cenk: make something up then. >> you're a pundit. >> there is so much on and off the record, i don't know what i'm free to say any more. >> put your mouth to it then. >> are you looking forward. >> not too bad with marvel and pixar and the muppets. i'm worried where lucas is going to put all that punish. i'll ask him the next time i do yardwork. >> cenk: when you use the light saver. >> yes cutting edge technology all the way. >> cenk: you can have it for $4.05 million. >> thank you. >> cenk: when we come back we
